FACEBOOK FEED EYE ROLL: HARD BOILED EGG DIET
Recently, I’ve seen a lot of things cross my Facebook feed. Mostly political crap I’d rather not see because I get it: you like one guy but not the other or #metoo. But there has also been an uptick in the hardboiled egg diet. Every single time I see it I roll my eyes. If you’ve been one of the women who has shared this diet, please don’t be offended. You didn’t know. But rather than comment on it (because you know how well that goes over on Facebook…I thought I’d write a blog about it. It’s where I share my feelings.😂
NOT A FAN OF DIETS IN GENERAL
I think “diets” in general are a bad idea. If you’re trying to lose weight long term then a diet will fail you every time. Most people lose the weight, and lose it right away because the most popular diets are low in carbs causing you to shed water (therefore weight since the scale moves), but not fat. Fat is what you want to get rid of!
This diet is no different than any other diet I’ve seen out there except for the name. It’s basically super low calorie for two weeks with hardly any carbohydrates. That’s it! There’s nothing special or magical about it. Here’s a picture of the plan…again, I don’t recommend it.
I love eggs, but I’m not sure I’d love eating them every day, multiple times a day.
I’ve seen the “lose up to 20 lbs in two weeks” claims. I know how good it feels to see the scale move in the right direction, but is it worth starving yourself? You also most likely haven’t learned anything during that time about fueling or nourishing your body so that you can maintain that weight loss permanently. Do you get tired of the constant cycle of loss and gain? Maybe it’s time to try something different.
